Ohio is a wonderfully diverse state with many different accessible activities available. Major cities such as Cleveland, Columbus, and Cincinnati offer dozens of acclaimed museums, restaurants, and attractions. There are many state parks and lakes for those who love hiking, fishing, and the outdoors. With MobilityWorks’ recent acquisition of M.C. Mobility Systems, Inc. it has never been easier to connect with these amazing places throughout Ohio. Below are 7 accessible activities that you can’t miss during your next trip to the Buckeye State.
- Wright-Patterson Air Force Base
As one of the largest Air Force Bases in the country, this complex is located only a few miles northeast of Dayton. It was built on the location where the Wright Brothers experimented with flight and has since been an integral airfield for military aviation. This is also home to the National Museum of the United States Air Force, which is the largest and oldest military aviation museum in the entire world.
- Ohio Statehouse
The Statehouse of Ohio is not only a National Historic Landmark, but also a beautifully designed building which was constructed between 1839 and 1861. Accessible tours are offered daily, offering wheelchair accessible routes that go throughout the Capital Square. The Square is comprised of the Statehouse, Senate Building, and the Atrium.
- Newport Aquarium
Located just outside of Cincinnati, this aquarium has 70 exhibits and 14 galleries. They have some of the rarest shark rays in the world, and Plus, from January 7 – February 28th, kids will have free entry to the aquarium.
- Cincinnati Museum Center
This collection of museums is located at Union Terminal, once a major train station which was built in 1933. Today it is once again used as a train station, but is also the home of the Cincinnati History Museum, Duke Energy Children’s Museum, Museum of Natural History and Science, and an Omnimax Theater.
- Rock and Roll Hall of Fame
Located right on Lake Erie in Cleveland, this museum pays tribute to the most influential musicians, producers, and other creators of rock and roll. The museum is located in Cleveland because it’s the place where the term rock and roll was coined and where it found success early on. Its iconic shape was designed by I. M. Pei, the architect who also designed the modern addition to the Louvre.
- Cleveland Museum of Art
The Cleveland Museum of Art is known across the world in part for its incredible collection of Ancient Egyptian art. The museum has over 45,000 works of art and is annually one of the most visited art museums in the world. It is also home to the Ingalls Library, one of the most extensive collections of art literature.
- Cuyahoga Valley National Park
Located near the areas of Cleveland and Akron, this national park spans across 51 square miles of land. The park is home to several different bodies of water and waterfalls, as well as several different native wildlife species. There are dozens of trails to explore, most notably the Ohio and Erie Canal Towpath Trail, which is a 20-mile trail that in part runs along the old location of the Ohio and Erie Canal.
